German Sweet Chocolate Pie

Yes, I know, this is not a dinner. But you know me! You shouldn't be surprised that my first posted recipes would be desserts.

Side logistics note: I talked to Paula, and desserts should just be labeled as 'Desserts' so that they don't get mixed in with all our dinner recipes.

German Sweet Chocolate Pie
1 pkg (4 oz) Baker's German's Sweet Chocolate
1/3 c. milk
2 T. sugar
4 oz (1/2 package) cream cheese, softened
1 container (8 oz) Cool Whip, thawed
1 prepared Oreo crumb crust

Heat chocolate and 2 T. of the milk in saucepan over low heat, stirring until chocolate is melted. Remove from heat. In separate bowl, beat sugar into cream cheese. Add remaining milk and the chocolate mixture and beat until smooth. Fold in cool whip. Spoon into crust. Freeze until firm (about four hours). Garnish with chocolate curls, if desired. Let stand at room temperature for about one hour before serving. Store any leftover pie in freezer.

This is a very light, summery pie. It has a distinctive flavor because of the German chocolate. You could also top it with more Cool Whip.
